Make the Most of Small Spaces
Create space based on your personal habits. If you never eat in the kitchen, for example, remove the table to make way for more clutter-busting, useful items, like a Pier 1 Imports under-cabinet glass rack ($12, pier1.com), and an Ikea Vurm wine rack ($10, ikea.com).
Create a Triangle of Efficiency
Make sure you can move unencumbered among the three key work areas: sink, stove, and refrigerator. An efficient work area is made by installing an Ikea Värde base cabinet ($399, ikea.com) with drawers and a countertop that is 30 inches deep, 10 inches deeper than average.
